If you are the kind of person who wants to eat dessert at every meal including breakfast, this fried egg cake is the ideal morning meal for you. Created by the food blog Sprinkle Bakes, the German Fried Egg Cake (also known as spiegeleierkuchen) is an adapted version that incorporates a King Arthur Flour white cake recipe.

While it might not be the most authentic spiegeleierkuchen you've ever had, the dish will certainly satiate your sweet tooth. The vanilla-pudding topped baked good only looks like a fried egg and features a "yolk" made out of halved apricots. To make the lemon-scented cake even more realistic looking as a fried egg, you can add ground vanilla bean powder or poppy powder as black pepper and serve with a side of applewood bacon shortbread cookies.
